This book explores the impact of new technology on people and their jobs and how, through the use of job design and work organizational concepts, it is possible to achieve a match between human and technological needs. The use and analysis of case studies in the book suggests that new technology calls for new forms of management and organization in order to maintain the involvement of people in a technological age. It also demonstrates the relationship between changing technology and corporate culture and how the effective management of change can provide a strategic advantage. The implications for managers introducing IT, in terms of attitudes, assumptions, management and organizational structure, are extensively illustrated and explored.
